Hampsfield House, was built in the 1880’s for Sir John Hibbert, an Oldham business man and later in life Member of Parliament within the Gladstone Government. The original Mansion House was built to a high specification, mainly of stone, and lying within extensive gardens and agricultural land holdings.

In 2002/03 the property was extensively and sympathetically developed to a very high standard to create a small community of 13 individual luxury dwellings by renowned local builder (Robert Hughes Ltd) making the absolute most of the superb and unique location with country views.

The properties offer quality, seclusion, tranquility and individuality all exhibiting distinct and aesthetically pleasing features. Tucked away privately, within its own grounds, located within The Lake District National Park, this hidden gem offers quick and easy access to local amenities in particular within Grange-Over-Sands. The town centre has a wide ranging retail offer and specialist shops, a large post office, access to a variety of medical facilities and schools. It is within 1 mile of Grange-Over-Sands Railway Station (with services direct to Manchester Airport, Barrow and Carlisle) and is afforded excellent accessibility to the wider South Lakeland towns and attractions. Eg Cartmel, Arnside, Kendal, Ulverston and only a 10 minute drive to Newby Bridge and Lake Windermere.

From the moment you pass through the impressive imposing stone gate pillars off Windermere Road (B5271) leading up to Hampsfield House, the enviable views and idyllic setting are the first thing to appreciate and fall in love with. With super views over Morecambe Bay and the Kent Estuary, wider countryside views across to The Pennines and the estates own woodland, the 1 Kilometre private drive is a pure pleasure. From the driveway you arrive at the electric cast iron entrance gate which opens to reveal the magnificent Hampsfield House and Grounds.

Hampsfield House can be easily reached in a southerly direction from Lindale, or off the A590, by taking Windermere Road (B5271) near The Royal Oak PH, towards Grange-Over-Sands. As you travel out of Lindale on your right hand side you will soon see the imposing stone wall and gate pillars signed Hampsfield House. In a northerly direction from Grange-Over-Sands again take Windermere Road (B5271) firstly passing through the small hamlet of Slack and then on your left passing The Merlewood holiday complex. Continue up the hill and as the road starts to bend to the left and starts to go down hill you will see, on the left, the imposing stone wall and gate pillars and signs for Hampsfield House.
